The '''Episcopal Assembly of North and Central America''', founded in 2010, consists of all the active Orthodox [[bishop]]s of North and Central America, representing multiple [[jurisdiction]]s. It is the successor to [[SCOBA]] and has assumed responsibility for all SCOBA agencies and ministries. It is not, properly speaking, a [[synod]]. The Episcopal Assembly of North and Central America is one of several such bodies around the world which operate in the so-called "[[diaspora]]."
The Episcopal Assemblies derive their authority and basic rules of operation from the decisions of the Fourth Pre-Conciliar Pan-Orthodox Conference held at the Orthodox Center of the [[Ecumenical Patriarchate]] in Chambésy, Switzerland, from June 6-12, 2009.
